It may have a negative or positive influence on your full custody chances.

Have you notified the court about your move?

Why did you move (better job, better housing)?

Will this change the visitation you proposed in your full custody petition?

Did you notify the other parent before the move?

If you moved the children with you to NJ, did you notify the court beforehand?

All these questions and more are important before an answer can be provided.

You should consider hiring counsel to represent you in the change in custody.
